Marianne Poorman Level, age 79, was born January 13, 1941 in Robinson, IL, the daughter of John and Marjorie, nee Jackson, Poorman. Marianne grew up on the family farm in Robinson where she learned many life lessons including how to work hard and take care of others.  After high school, she turned taking care of others into a profession and entered Baptist Missouri College of Nursing where she graduated as a Registered Nurse.  This started a career that was very fulfilling for Marianne, spending much of her time in pediatric nursing.  She loved children.  And then it was time for a family of her own.  Marianne's children brought her much joy and she was a great mother, teaching her children to be independent and confident and giving them a foundation for sucessful lives.

  Marianne died on the evening of March 13, 2020 in Racine, Wisconsin surrounded by her beloved children, Bryce Level of Long Neck, Deleware, Jennifer (Antonio) Andreon of West Palm Beach, Florida and Rick (Lynn) Level of Lake Zurich, Illinois.  

  She was also the loving grandmother of Lucas Andreon; dear sister of Ed Poorman, John D. (Chris-Ann) Poorman, and Donna Jean Bedard (late Alfred); dear aunt of Beth (Tom) O'Keefe; and great aunt of Bridget and Evan O'Keefe

  Marianne's children will fulfill their mother's wishes and private family burial service.  Her family invites you to visit the "Condolences" and "Photos" sections of this memorial to leave a message or memory or to upload a photograph.

Marianne Level has been a part of my life and someone whom I will never forget. She looked after me when I had the chicken pox as a 32 year old adult virtually before virtual was even a thing! My own family would not look after me and she took the time to call me twice a day from Chicago, advise me on what to do and to make sure I was doing it! I never actually met her in person, but she is the mother of my dear friend Jennifer, and it was Jennifer who told Marianne about me being ill. I tell this story often, and will continue to tell it.
I would like to express my sadness, and to express my condolences to her family.

You know many of my stories, but we ALWAYS had each others back and road trips via auto x 2 getting her relocated in Fl. We were those wild ones laughing, singing and complaining at times, but we saw Grand Ole Opry, Graceland, Chattanooga and always had our opinions. Then Lil Lucas experimenting with tooth paste, make up etc. finger-painted on bathroom mirror, all cushions from couch turned into slide, trampoline, fort, etc. Life made fun with love for that precious grandson. Never ever a Lucas comment without love and joy. My sister friend will always be in my heart.

God rest her soul... one of my favorite memories of Marianne Level was when Aziz was a baby in a walker we were all sitting around her kitchen table and he was having a fit because he wanted to be "part-of"... she picked him and the walker up & put him on her kitchen table to "walk" around & not only did he become a "part of" he became the center of attention. she was a hoot... what you saw is what you got... she NEVER had a problem telling it like it is! She's free now.

I just learned of Marianne's passing from earth to her glorious home of heaven. She was a true delight. I know he is having great conversations with Jesus about the challenges of earthly living. Her passion for caring for people often forgotten and children...What a huge heart! She blessed me with great encouragement in my ministry. God bless you dear friend and God is with your beautiful family. Love to all. Thanks for sharing Marianne with us.
